My cousin Munda
our mamma Eia used to say you were her beloved niece… now you have joined her. You have been so strong and so careful for us, despite your sickness these last years, and the distance, that it is hard to find the right words.
Héðinn : I remember how nicely you welcomed us in your flat in Reykjavik, when I was starting to have too many children to always go to Dora’s and from this on, we kept a strong relationship, exchanging regularly messages, sending pictures of the new members of the family : the last ones you sent to me, you were so proud of Dora’s little baby, Asa Valsdottir who was just born and you wanted to inform me.
But you were helpful for many things : finding lopapeysa for the kids, sending me regular news about general news in Iceland (volcano eruptions, etc…), your health, and the family of course. In one word you were my connection with Iceland, and you did all that with such kindness, though I was aware your situation was difficult. But you never mentioned that, and instead, you were asking news about my own problems…
I read one of your messages of november 2021, you were telling me, despite bad medical exams that you were going to “Keep on fighting”.
You were so strong Munda min.
And fun : this year you also wrote to me (with a big smiley) : “your big bro got 50, even though he thinks he is 25 forever”
You will be young, bright, kind and in our heart forever Munda min.
